Black Councilman Told To Pick Cotton

News

There's a lot of racism today! Yippee:


A squabble at a council meeting in a Georgia city has caught the attention of the NAACP after a white councilman told his black counterpart that he should be working in a cotton field.

The exchange took place in a recent Warner Robins City Council meeting near Macon, Georgia, said Larry Holmes, president of the NAACP in Houston County.

....

The heated argument captured on tape was between council members John Williams, who is white, and Daron Lee, who is black, the affiliate reported.

During the exchange, Lee said he was tired of being interrupted and was upset about how he was treated at an earlier meeting.

"I was disrespected last Monday. I'm getting about tired of you all, talking to me any kind of way. I'm not working in a cotton field," Lee said.

Williams paused for a second and then replied, "You should be."

Especially after we pitched writing a Wonket about this Mother Jones story on how global warming may be killing the whales, even though Donald Trump knows their prince. (Reply: "Nope. FOR SURE NOT THAT.") And so, as a reminder that a gooder world is possible and apropos of nothing at all that definitely didn't set your Editrix off on Twitter, where she has been stewing and bitching most shrillfully about the 2016 election and the 2020 election and any terrible similarities thereof and thereupon and therefore and thereto, we present a collection of videos of Elizabeth Warren yelling at big banks and calling for them to be broken up and their criminal operators to go to jail. Puppies and kittens will only get you so far, after all.
